Smoke and tar on the nose with the bell pepper, leafy tones and black currant fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon over milky oak tones. Rich and smooth on entry with the added density and flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon, which is well-integrated but obvious. There’s a touch of wood spice here, and some wood tannins that poke out on the finish, which is a bit short, but shows rich blackberry and black cherry fruit. A well-made wine, but not my style of Chianti. 87pts

Beautiful balance, with ripe black fruit, mineral and a hint of toasty oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, minerally finish. Very refined. Best Castello ever. Best after 2005.

The 2001 Chianti Classico confirms that this vintage will be offering much gratification. A full ruby in color, the wild cherry and black currant nose, lightly oaked, and the fresh, round, vigorous flavors give a wine comfortably above the appellation average. Drink: now-2008.

Deep, lush and enchanting for what amount a basic Chianti Classico. The nose offers licorice, black plum, wild berry and clove. The palate is equally nice, with cherry, plum and oozing berry all rolled into one. Fine texture; good tannic grip; good balance; just what the doctor ordered. From Mazzei.

Good ruby-red. Aromas of geranium, violet, coffee, and caramel oak are pretty but lack depth. Sweet and supple on the palate, with a smooth texture. This uncomplicated wine is very easy to enjoy.

Very dark, rich and chocolately - and pretty darn oaky, too. But oh, what size and power. The nose is pure hickory smoke, leather and black fruit, while the palate overflows with cassis, black plum and pepper. The mouthfeel is silky yet aggressive, with big tannins and pulsating acids. And the coffee and cacao on the finish go on and on.

Plenty of plum and berry character. Medium-bodied, with good fruit, medium tannins and a good finish. Always a good wine for the money. Best from 2004 through 2007.
